About me

I grew up in upstate New York and have wanted to be a doctor since I was 3 years old. My grandpa died of cancer when I was 8 years old, and after that I vowed I would help fight cancer. I see helping others as the true meaning of life. I trained at Washington University in St. Louis for residency and I completed a one-year fellowship in Dallas/Fort Worth. I am an inducted member in the American Head & Neck Society, the largest organization of specialized head and neck cancer specialists in the world. I am also an inducted member of the American College of Surgeons. Along with my busy clinical practice, I started a nonprofit organization called Healing the Children Rocky Mountains, which leads a cleft lip and cleft palate volunteer surgical mission to Peru yearly to help disadvantaged children. I go on two to three cleft missions a year. I am happily married and have a son and a daughter. I love raising my family in Colorado.

About my practice

I love being able to see patients in clinic, operate and immediately help them with their problems. I also enjoy working with people of all ages. I am trained in both head and neck cancer surgery and in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. I am double board certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, and by the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery. I am trained to treat head and neck cancer in minimally invasive techniques such as Da Vinci robotic surgery and in endoscopic CO2 laser surgery. I also enjoy all types of reconstructive and aesthetic procedures of the face and neck, such as rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, facial trauma repair and skin cancer repair. I have specialized training in microvascular free tissue transfer and in cleft surgery. I also have a special interest in endocrine surgery and surgically treating all disorders of the thyroid and parathyroid glands including cancer, adenomas, hyperplasia and goiters.

How I thrive

I strive to have a great balance between my personal and professional life. When I am home, I love spending time with my family. We love to go hiking and camping. Volunteer work and traveling is very important and fulfilling to me. I have traveled to more than 30 countries and love learning new things. I am very active in my church and this brings me a lot of joy. Finally, I enjoy road biking, playing golf, running and reading books.

Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

If your CPMG physician decides that you require covered services not available internally from CPMG, he or she will refer you to an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.

You must have a written referral to the affiliated/contracted physician/provider in order for Kaiser Permanente Colorado to cover the services. A referral is a written authorization from Kaiser Permanente for you to receive a covered service from an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.
